A thought about Christmas.

Did you ever stop to consider during Christmas that the greatest miracle isn’t that Christ was resurrected but that as Mark says – And the Word became flesh? The condescension of God is what we really celebrate. We say that we’re celebrating His birth but do we really stop to consider what that means? God who exists from the beginning of Time agreed to take on Mortality with all the pain and suffering it entails to save us from our own stupidity.
Do you ever wonder if that’s the difference between the Old Testament and every thing after? Now that we know He experienced mortality with its perceived hardships, we demand mercy rather than the rages of the Old Testament.

    In a way, I hadn’t really realized it. But I think maybe you’re right. That might be the reason.
